Extracts from the press conference by László Andor, on the improvement of the EURES job search network
On 17 January 2014, László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, held a press conference on the improvement of the EURES pan-European job search network proposed by the European Commission.
Under the EC's proposal, EURES would be strengthened to provide more job offers, increase the likelihood of job matches and help employers, notably small and medium businesses, to fill job vacancies faster and better. The proposal would help citizens to make the most informed choice possible when it comes to moving abroad for work. The proposed new rules would make EURES more efficient, recruitments more transparent and cooperation among Member States stronger. SHOTLIST
